How to get there

Tips from locals
  • Trains
    • There are good connections between state cities (Łodź, Warsaw, Poznań...)
    • Most people will probably want to get off at Łódź Kaliska or Łódź Fabryczna (loop) station.
  • Air travel
    • There is an airport in Łódź, but it can be cheaper to fly to Warsaw and take the train to Łódź (1,5 to 2 hours).
From the UK
  • Ryanair Stanstead→Łódź. < £90 return. No flight Thurs 18th July, 06:25 Weds, 10:20 Tues. Return Sunday 22:40→23:55
  • British Airways fly Heathrow→Warsaw £220 return
  • Lot fly Heathrow→Warsaw £300 return. Sun 21 Jul 18:10 WAW→19:50 LHR
